over the last 3 month's i've done quite a bit of towing with my MO..

1) 4x8 Trailer (SnowBear) loaded with about 200 lbs of stuff. (400lbs total). on the highway/city with no problems what so ever (I did have problems with the lights, but that was due to the dealer installing the wrong wiring box, which they are going to fix this week..)

2) 15" aluminum hunting boat which weights about 200 lbs, and trailer.. no problems what so ever.. lots of pickup (more then I expected).. no swaying or problems with breaking..

3) (THE BIG ONE) a 20" boat which weights 3500lbs with trailer (the max the MO can tow)... I usually use an expedition or trailblazer to tow the boat. but I had to make due in short notice do to the storm we had last week.. I towed the boat about 2 kms.. I woudln't want to be pulling that boat on the highway.. although I never felt unsafe.. you did have to be VERY carefully with breaking.. the pads wouldn't last long if you had to pull that for a long distance.. as for the acceleration.. I had to put in the AWD lock for pulling out of the water, and it crept out slowly.. you could tell the transmission was working hard (it was a fairly steep launch..) overall acceleration was ok.. not bad.. (almost closer to the trailblazer with the V6..) but still you could tell it was working hard..

FYI: the class 2 hitches are rated at 3500 lbs, and 300 lbs on the hitch

I put it in AWD lock before I even tried to get it out.. (if it was just front, then yes the front wheels would have lost traction) but with the AWD lock it was fine..

(Just checked the specs on the boat/trailer again, and the weight is 3300 lbs..)
